Greetings from Pastor Daryl and Jillian Elliott, and the Footscray Church.
In September, the Footscray church hosted it’s 8th annual conference . Under the ministry of Pastor Greg Mitchell, and Pastor Tom Payne, the Victorian churches were greatly helped and encouraged. One of the highlights of the conference was the announcement of a new church into the local area of Coburg, and an international church into Hosakote, India.
During Halloween, the church hosted the Heaven’s Gates, Hell’s flames production with over 40 decisions for Christ.
At Christmas, we took advantage of the Australian summer and held our annual outdoor Carols by Candlelight where we saw many people from the local community attend, and souls saved. Our outdoor evangelism continued into the warm months of the New Year with music and movie park outreaches. Despite Melbourne’s unpredictable weather, and three of our concerts ending in rain and storms, we saw many decisions for Christ as our disciples preached the gospel and gave altar calls.
A recent highlight was a service where 15 people were baptised in the Holy Spirit, and following the service 9 people were water baptised.
Just recently we held an Easter drama production called The Passion – The Musical, based on the film The Passion of The Christ. The drama was held over two nights beginning Good Friday, and saw a total of 23 people saved.
